 This is a good number, don't you think? 13 has always been the family lucky number: got married on a Friday the 13th, Lewis was born on a 13th, so good things are sure to come.
The year started off with a nasty cold/flu though, that held us in its grip for 2 weeks, so life can only get better now!

But before this we ended 2012 real nice. Right after Christmas we left the kids with Oma and the husband took me and my Nikon D80 with a new badass lens to California.
Hollywood and Palm Springs, enjoy some of my favorite impressions.. just keep scrolling!

 I tell you I was NOT close to this bighorn sheep - thank you, fabulous lens!
 Joshua Tree National Park - truly enchanted!

 I do knit a lot when I travel and went well stocked with yarns, so I was able to work on this hat for Lewis.

 I finished this shorty shrug for Fiona.
 And I made this one for myself!

 Not bad for a six day vacation I dare say!

We got back on New Years Day. Since then the kids happily started school and we are all working on getting completely healthy. No resolutions have been made - I never do - however, I find myself digging out UFOs and finishing unfinished knitting projects. The power of the subconscious, right? 
I will show you more next time, stay tuned.
Be well friends and a happy and lucky 2013 to all of you!
